Pen Pal Program

The Southfield Public Library is launching a new pen pal program called Mail Mates. Residents of all ages interested in being matched with another letter writer in the Southfield area can register for the Mail Mates program by filling out the form below. Participants will receive a Mail Mates kit; with a pen, stationery paper, and writing prompts. All letters will be returned the Southfield Public Library for mailing by a librarian.

Questions? Contact Ashley at or (248) 796 – 4333.

  1. All letters must be responded to within 7 days. If you cannot continue your participation in the Pen Pal Program please contact the Southfield Public Library so that your pen pal can be reassigned.
  2. Minors (those under the age of 18) must have a guardian’s permission to participate. The library encourages guardians to check in often on their child’s letters.
  3. Pen Pals cannot meet in person.
  4. Photos cannot be sent.

Please remember a librarian may read any or all correspondence that passes through this program.
